Earlier in July 2019, Dubai Stars announced that BTS will have a star on the Dubai Walk of Fame.
BTS were selected to have a star following a Dubai Stars project fan vote. Starting in March, fans had an opportunity to vote for the group using the Twitter hashtag #BTSDubaiStar. On July 1, the Dubai StarsTwitter page announced BTS’ selection.
“A Dubai Star is now dedicated to the popular South Korean boy band from Seoul—@bts_bighit,” the tweet reads. “Will you be cheering for them at our launch event this October?”
According to Timeout Dubai, the Walk of Fame project will pay tribute to “eminent personalities who have positively influenced the world through their work” across various fields including music, film, art, sports and literature.”
So far, BTS is the only Korean act identified as having a star.
The Dubai Walk of Fame, located at Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, will eventually hold 10,000 stars when the project’s complete. Currently, 400 stars, including BTS’ star along with soccer star Lionel Messi, Saudi Arabian singer Abdul Majeed Abdullah, and actor Shah Rukh Khan,will be unveiled this October.
